ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE
WHAT IS ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE?
Active Release Technique is a soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These conditions are a result of muscle pulls or tears, an accumulation of small tears, or muscles not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia).
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN ACTIVE RELEASE TREAT?
WHAT IS THE COURSE OF TREATMENT?
Each Active Release Technique is the combination of examination and treatment. Your healthcare provider uses his hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, tendons, and ligaments. As your Active Release Provider encounters abnormalities in the muscles, he treats those abnormalities by combining direct tension and very specific patient movements.
